In an ideal world, all of their nutrition would come from the forage or concentrated feeds they are given. This, however, is rarely the case, as forage or grazing quality can vary wildly. There is also the factor that each animal will have different nutritional needs throughout their lives. Filling in the gaps in the regular diet is essential to ensure that they thrive. Luckily, with the advent of lick tubs, fulfilling these nutritional needs is easier than ever.

It can be difficult to ensure your cattle have a balanced diet rich in essential minerals once you allow them to range and forage throughout a large pasture. Mineral tubs can be the answer to making sure your cattle have the proper nutrition. Mineral tubs are large tubs or blocks of solid feed, blended with a number of essential minerals that may include calcium, magnesium, cobalt, copper, iodine, zinc, selenium, potassium, manganese and other critical minerals and vitamins. The blocks are often flavored with a tasty treat, such as molasses, to entice cattle to lick and nibble. Because of the density of the blocks, however, the cattle cannot overindulge — instead, they often get just a few licks of the block each time they visit, and must wait for the block to soften slightly before they can get another taste.
It comes down to having better livestock that make more money. They are highly concentrated vitamin and mineral packs, with high Vitamin A, E, and D content. This high concentration means that small intake yields big results, making it a very cost effective system. The OLS customer can have their animals on the absolute best ingredients at a controlled cost per head, per day.
